Jazz Jennings 'super happy' with results of third gender confirmation surgery

Trans activist, Jazz Jennings, completed her third gender confirmation surgery this week, and took to Instagram to share the happy news with her fans.

The 19-year-old, who is the star of TLC's I Am Jazz, announced last year that she was taking a year off from school and deferring her place at Harvard to spend time focusing on her mental health - something she later told The New York Times that she was "very glad" she had the opportunity to do.

It appears that this time off also gave Jennings the time needed to undergo her third confirmation surgery. Indeed, she took to social media today to confirm that the procedure had taken place, and that she was "super happy" with the results.

Watch as Pritzker signs order to protect transgender students:

Jennings posted a photo of her in a hospital bed, and in the caption, she thanked those who have supported her over the years - since she spoke about being transgender at the age of six, on the news programme 20/20.

"I’m feeling so great after completing my third surgery! This third procedure was for cosmetics, and I’m super happy with the results. Thank you to everyone who has followed my journey and supported me along the way," she wrote.

The post was quickly inundated with messages of support and encouragement. "I know this was tough for you. Than you so much for sharing this part of your journey with us," wrote one Instagram user, while another corroborated "I’m so happy to hear things went well. Thank you for sharing your life and journey."

"You go girl! You deserve all the happiness in the world!" added a third.

This comes a year after Jennings underwent her first gender confirmation surgery in 2018, which did not quite go to plan. During the procedure, she experienced a "major"complication which required a second surgery to repair the issue.

We wish you a speedy recovery, Jazz!
